We first heard of a shadowy NPC stalking players a few days after the release of the game. When players approached the human-like shadow, it disappeared. We didn’t know what it was at the time, but now, it’s confirmed to be the Grim Reaper. But, there are theories that Odin himself is disguised as the Grim Reaper. Keep reading to know more and how to find Grim Reaper Easter egg in Valheim.
Who is the Grim Reaper in Valheim
There is no confirmation from the developers about the identity of the Grim Reaper, but like always Redditors have theories of their own. One of the most talked about is that the shadowy character is Odin himself. It’s a nice chilling addition to the game by the developers and nothing uncommon. We have seen in the past with other games to have mysterious NPCs. It just adds an element of surprise and mystery to the game, and even more so, in a magical game based on the Vikings.
If you have been reading blogs from the developers or even gone through their website, there is the mention of Odin at the end of each press release and post, having Odin visit players in the game can be a cool way to reiterate that, which we know the developers are capable of.
How to Find Grim Reaper Easter Egg in Valheim
Well! Would it not be nice to have the power to summon Odin, but that’s not possible. The NPC appears at random and seems to show when the player has achieved a mark in the game or players who are worthy of the encounter. When you encounter the Odin Easter egg in the game, getting closer will have the NPC disappear and reappear at another location.
To increase the odds of finding Odin or the Grim Reaper Easter egg, there are some things you can do such as:
- Explore the Swamp or the Meadows biome. Players who encountered the NPC were always in one of the two biomes when Odin appeared.
- It usually happens after you have defeated a boss, most likely after the Bonemass moss fight.
- Go deep into the forest to find animals to farm.
So, that’s all you need to know to find Odin Valheim. Check out the game category for more informative guides and tips to play the game.
